I would have written sooner, but I’ve been helping tend to the many injuries suffered by the various members of the Wheatus touring party.  During that time we’ve traveled to an played York, Manchester, Stoke-On-Trent, Sheffield, and Kingston-All-Up-On-Them-Thames.  Fan videos abound.  I am certain also that the twittersphere is bloated with errata regarding our goings-on.  What I bring to you here is something you can’t get anywhere else: the inside scoop.  Would you like sprinkles with that?
